Mapping components in M.App Studio

Hello everyone,


I am new to M.App Studio and need some guidance. How does one insert mapping components such as the north arrow and map scale into a B.I. Map?


Your help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Mapping components in M.App Studio

Please check this topic for sample code on scale bar.

(although it's bit old, I can't tell if it still works)


North Arrow (as a plain image) cannot be probably added also using the Leaflet layer. But I found only a generic example:

Re: Mapping components in M.App Studio

Hi Jan,


The code provided works for inserting a scale bar for the BI Map. For the north arrow- I have HTML coded an image rather than using JS.


Thanks again for all your help.
